The Ladybird Book of the Sickie [9780718184438]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

When Jesse gets home from a very big party, he phones his manager and leaves a message. Now he does not have to get up early to call in sick.

'Calling the office at 3:07am is exactly what someone with a real cold would do,' Jesse thinks to himself as he falls asleep on his stairs with a kebab for a pillow.

The Ladybird Book of the Sickie - a nugget of wisdom from bestselling authors Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris.

This delightful book is the latest in the series of Ladybird books which have been specially planned to help grown-ups with the world about them.

The large clear script, the careful choice of words, the frequent repetition and the thoughtful matching of text with pictures all enable grown-ups to think they have taught themselves to cope.

Featuring original Ladybird artwork alongside brilliantly funny, brand new text.

 AUTHOR: Jason Hazeley is the co-writer of The Framley Examiner and the best-selling Bollocks to Alton Towers. Along with Joel Morris, he has written for a frankly stupid number of radio and TV comedy shows including Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe. He divides his time between London and the pub.
